Vintage Photos: Dismantling of the 1912 Brick Clock Tower Courthouse

On the morning of December 5th, 1937, the majestic brick Clock Tower Courthouse, the third courthouse to be erected in Melbourne, burned leaving only a charred, empty hulk. The second courthouse, a frame structure, had been dismantled to make way for this beautiful building. Below are some more photos found at the Arkansas Tech University's "Arkansas Digital History Institute" web page showing the burned-out building as it was being dismantled by the NYA Resident Training Project in early 1938.
